Things to consider if you have divorce-related business concerns

If you're nurturing a small business in Connecticut during the divorce process, you obviously want to retain a solid focus on what has driven your success, even as you deal with the stresses and complexities of marital dissolution.

That's easier said than done, isn't it?

As a recent business article on that topic duly notes, "Business owners are, first and foremost, people."

That means this: Emotions will come to the fore throughout a family law process that is immediately singular in all respects. For most people, divorce is a life-changing big deal. It doesn't usually yield a smooth ride in most cases, especially for affected parties who are simultaneously trying to run a business.

We'll readily concede that it's an overstatement to claim, as does the writer of the above-cited piece, that "a top family lawyer is worth their weight in gold" to a stressed-out business principal trying to juggle company matters with divorce details at the same time.

Yet there is certainly merit in the point that a divorcing business owner can materially benefit from the professional input of a seasoned family law attorney.

Many business owners share a handful or more of the same concerns that other divorcing parties often have. Those revolve around matters like child custody/visitation, spousal maintenance and child support and equitable property division. Proven divorce attorneys routinely provide valued input on all those issues.

And where a business is concerned, studied legal advice can be fundamentally important. Gaining certainty around the starting date of a business, assets used to establish and grow it, a spouse's contributions and additional factors can all be critically important for determining ownership and asset division.

"[Y]our family lawyer will be your greatest ally" throughout the divorce process, stresses the aforementioned article.

A proven attorney can respond to questions or concerns regarding business considerations during divorce and any other dissolution-related matters.
